Anybody who knows the US congress knows vote trading. Once you know your vote does not count, you can vote against the bill you want. And scream! That way you kill two birds with one stone. You satisfy your constituents by lying to them and pretending you tried so hard to prevent the bill from passing. And you still get the nasty law passed that you really want passed. Likewise Obama has bowed to Kantor and AIPAC and promised never, never to make Israel surrender one inch. Now, the State Department knows, probably even had a hand in, the steps to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state. So they let the Pal state go ahead and happen, which is what they want, and at the same time they spread their open hands to Kantor and AIPAC and pretend to sob. If you don't get it, don't worry. It's complicated. But it's famous.
